Forgot to link to this interview conducted by Chris Gooch, comic editor of the Suburban Review Magazine.
Thought this was nice n cooked -
CG: Your work often seems to deal with spiritual/mystic themes (‘How do you know?’ is a great example). What attracts you to these stories? Does this represent a personal intersection between art and life for you?
DCM: I’m not sure mystic is the right term, spiritual is closer. A common thread through my work is that time is a very human concept that we use to create history. Without the concept of time humans would just be an ongoing string of shared ideas and experience related down through art and language. We are all connected in this sense, every human that has ever existed. We have all built up reality together, over this dimension that we have labelled ‘time’. I wouldn’t say this concept is mystical, it’s more philosophical. I like to celebrate the connection, the unity between all humans that we forget and ignore. I suppose I just want to remind everyone that you/we are part of something larger, and it’s not scary, it’s a beautiful concept.
